Vertical Lists, Bullets

Q. I’ve read 6.124–6.126 about vertical lists, but I’m still confused about how to punctuate a long vertical list that completes an introductory statement without punctuating it as one terribly long sentence.

A. You have found that CMOS would punctuate your list as a long sentence (6.125). If that doesn’t work for you, rewrite your introductory statement to make it grammatically complete and follow the examples in 6.124.
